                SEEMS SO LONG AGO, NANCY- Leonard Cohen

     Bm      F#   Bm   F#m  C#m  F#m
It seems so long ago, Nancy was alone
  A               Bm                       A      E      A
Looking at the Late Late show through a semi-precious stone
 C#                F#m         D             A
In the House of Honesty her father was on trial
 E                F#m          C#m           D
In the House of Mystery there was no one at all
       A      E     F#m
there was no one at all 

It seems so long ago, none of us were strong
Nancy wore green stockings and she slept with everyone 
She never said she'd wait for us although she was alone
I think she fell in love for us in nineteen sixty one
In nineteen sixty one 

It seems so long ago, Nancy was alone
A forty five beside her head, an open telephone 
We told her she was beautiful, we told her she was free
But none of us would meet her in the House of Mystery
The House of Mystery 

And now you look around you, see her everywhere
Many use her body, many comb her hair 
In the hollow of the night when you are cold and numb
You hear her talking freely then
She's happy that you've come
She's happy that you've come 

NOTE: use the picking pattern explained in Winter Lady
(from Songs From a Room, 1968)
